THE INDIAN WANTS THE BRONX
Two street kids, lurking through the Bronx, find themselves sharing a bus stop late one night with a strange traveller. What ensues is the violent and heart-wrenching exposure of xenophobia, racism, segregation, homophobia, and the severance of communication, ultimately laying bare the human condition.

STATEMENT REGARDING ISRAEL HOROVITZ FROM BURNING PALM PRODUCTIONS
We at Burning Palm Productions fully acknowledge the allegations made against Mr. Horovitz, and in no way, shape or form condone or support his actions and are in complete support for his victims. We believe that this material ‘The Indian Wants the Bronx’ is a direct contradiction to the actions and behaviour of Mr. Horovitz as it reveals the darkness, emptiness and utter pain of abuse and the lasting effects it can have. We believe that this play is extremely relevant for today’s social climate, as it deals with the universal themes and issues of racism, xenophobia, sexism, abuse, pain, communication/lack thereof and the different ways that power is used to bully and subdue its victims. In solidarity with the victims of Horowitz, we have decided to happily forgo all fees, and donate all the proceeds from our show to organisations that help victims of sexual abuse. We do not intend to make profit from this play and want to use any money acquired to help others. We hope you appreciate our efforts, and our thoughts. As true artists, our aim is to start or renew conversations about society and its deep imperfections, and this play is but a step in that direction.
